UD Trucks today unveiled New Quester with enhancements to the well-established heavy-duty truck. New Quester will enable logistics companies to tackle critical industry challenges and boost their bottom line through Smart Logistics.
To be introduced in fast-growing regions around the world, the launch of New Quester highlights UD Trucks’ unwavering commitment of “Going the Extra Mile” for customers’ businesses.
Building on proven robustness and reliability, New Quester introduces key features such as ESCOT automated manual transmission, engines with higher horsepower and user-friendly telematics to deliver greater fuel efficiency, productivity, driver efficiency, safety, and uptime.
Håkan Karlsson, President, Volvo Group Trucks Asia & JVs, said “Quester comes from the best of three worlds: UD Trucks’ strong Japanese heritage and craftsmanship, Volvo Group’s innovative technology and strong local manufacturing and customer support.
UD Trucks is recognized for pioneering new innovations within the Japanese trucks segment, and New Quester is testament to our global industry leadership”.
At UD Trucks, its Gemba spirit means being close to the ground and listening to the needs of local customers to be their most valuable partner in respective markets and segments.
Jacques Michel, President, Volvo Group Trucks Asia & JVs Sales, said, “We recognize immense potential in fast-growing markets such as Southeast Asia, Middle East, Africa and Latin America where business success is a key contributor to economic progress. Combined with our Ultimate Dependability standard and Gemba spirit, New Quester marks our commitment to continue championing Smart Logistics and providing unmatched value to our customers in these regions.”
New Quester will be available in key markets around the world in phases from mid-February 2019 onwards. Thailand, which also serves as UD Trucks’ export hub to growth markets in Southeast Asia, will be the first to launch New Quester.
